Many Chicago connections at Mr. New England Leather Weekend, November 18-20, in Provincetown
Hosted by the Provincetown sibling of Full Kit Gear's flagship store in Andersonville, Mr. New England Leather weekend in Provincetown, Mass., will have many Chicago connections this year. Chicago's own Leather Archives & Museum will be mounting an exhibit honoring leather history in the New England region. Part-time Chicago resident Eric Alden will be stepping down from his title as the current Mr. New England Leather. Chicagoan Jon Krongard will be master of ceremonies and Rick Storer will be a contest judge. Many friends from the Chicago area will be in attendance for the weekend of fun and education, including the Mr. New England Leather contest, held on Saturday night.
The Mr. New England Leather 2017 title winner will go on to compete at International Mister Leather ( IML ) in Chicago in May 2017. As lead sponsors, Full Kit Gear and host hotel The Crown & Anchor will be making the weekend possible and guarantee the winner a prize package to include airfare and hotel to compete at IML, a title sash and back patch along with custom gear and accessories.
Rounding out the offerings will be Saturday afternoon workshops, the expanded exhibit by the Leather Archives & Museum, and a silent auction running throughout the weekend, benefitting the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod.
